How can I call a PDF attachment inside a Custom Crystal Report?

By rspears911 ·
I am using Crystal XI with a custom report that I have made. I am using a SQL 2005 DB. This report is pulling over 100 different tables from the database.

I have PDF attachments being added to the records in a separate table. The attachment table is linked to each specific record correctly.

I am trying to find out how when the report runs it will display the attached PDF inside a sub report inside the main report.

Is this even possible????

head would be to convert the pdf to a set of page sized images and then pop that in. Liable to be a major PIA. Basically you want to mix rpt and pdf in one file, to do that you need to convert them into a common format.

Unless there's an extension component about, you are writing code to do this I think. Creating PDFs is trivial, rendering them, is where the 'fun' is at.
